Following State presentation finals on Saturday, July 16, youth who are 12-18 years who have completed leadership and/or public speaking projects can stay on NC State University Campus for the remainder of 4-H Congress. We had 14 4-H’ers represented at Congress, all excited for the opportunities to come!

Induction of New District Officers!

A pillar of 4-H is Civic Engagement and because 4-H’ers “Learn By Doing” they engage in electing officers on Club, County, District and State levels.

This year Henderson County members Emma Barber and Hannah Queen held their campaigns and were elected as District Officers!
